A Towamencin man who admitted breaking into a Lansdale home has been given five years on probation.
He must also do 24 hours of community service and pay a $200 fine.
26-year-old Bennie Hall of Weikel Road pleaded guilty to a felony charge of criminal trespass for entering a home on Derstine Avenue in Lansdale last June and filling a duffel bag with the homeowner’s personal property.
The victim called police while he was still inside and, after they made their presence known, he climbed out a second-floor window onto the roof and jumped, suffering serious leg injuries.
